Sam Webb Gets Cryptic: Another Committed Defensive Player (or 2?) Visiting?

Submitted by icefins26 on December 12th, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Via Sam Webb from last night (didn't see any posts).  I asked if it was Reon Dawson and didn't get  a response back.  Anyone have any guesses?


Another elsewhere-committed defender expected at #Michigan this weekend. A kid not mentioned before



Not mentioning name yet so as not to introduce the complications that MAY preclude another potential visitor from making it in.

Sam speculated on how the class will end up on this AM's Recruiting Roundup. Speculation only:

Feels really good about these three:

-Derek Greene

-Dave Dawson

-Reon Dawson

Feels less good about these but still his guess:

-Another OL, Cam Hunt or maybe Dan Skipper

-A LB prospect

I don't follow Scout as much as I do Rivals so I'm not sure if Sam Webb has mentioned him yet before.  However, you're probably right.  I've also heard rumblings about Marquis Little from Boston College the last couple of days via this here blog (again, since I've heard it I doubt it's him).

Magnus, thank you for lowering expectations that the player isn't someone we're already aware of and doesn't have a star rating that will excite everyone. Now our expectations can soar as we imagine every 5-star defensive prospect in the country. All the hopelessly optimistic fans thank you. 

I mean this has to be Jaylon Smith or Su'a Cravens, right?  Right?

if i had one wish for christmas, it would be that people on this board would stop thinking it's funny to say "alex kozan?" or "stefon diggs?" every time there is a mystery recruit in the fold. i mean, please please please please please make it stop.

It's like that guy at work who uses the same handful of bad jokes over and over for years on end. If no one laughed the first time you said "rings phoning" back in 1985 it probably isn't gonna get funnier If you repeat it for 25 years. (he's also a spArty)

Robert Nkemdiche.  He's been watching Alaska State Troopers marathon and has decided that cold weather isn't a big deal. 

One other thought is Dorian O'Daniel because of the Good Counsel connection.

I think the 2nd tweet is in regards to Reon Dawson. He put it out there that he was going to visit this weekend and then got bombed with phone calls.

Difficult to be a high level recruit anymore. What 4 major recruiting services all wanting quotes? Not to mention all of the upstart blogs trying to get in the recruiting game.

Maybe it's Cam Burrows? Since Conley left to go with his buddy, maybe he wants to go with McCray?

I can dream can't I?

I like the Reschke idea above though, that could make some sense.
